CHE hosts annual ODI health fellows’ training day

Posted on 28 August 2018

In July 2018, CHE welcomed the latest Health Fellows accepted onto the Overseas Development Institute's (ODI) Fellowship Scheme for a one day training event in Health Economics. Also in attendance were colleagues from Imperial College London.

The ODI Fellows will soon be working as civil servants for Ministry of Health departments and units across a number of low and middle-income countries. The one day training event provides an introduction to key themes in health economics, which will underpin the work in the Health Fellow's new roles. 

The day began with an introduction by the Director of CHE, Maria Goddard, followed by an introduction by Health Economist Paul Revill to the ongoing Thanzi La Onse project (https://thanzi.org/). Further presentations were delivered by Mathilde Peron, Peter Smith, Wiktoria Tafesse, Martin Chalkley, Karl Claxton and James Love-Koh which provided an introduction to varying themes in health economics. This year's event also included an insightful open discussion about life as an ODI fellow led by Finn McGuire, who has previously worked within the Ministry of Health in Malawi under the ODI Fellowship Scheme. 

CHE would like to thank Robin Sherbourne at the ODI and Paul Revill for supporting the organisation of the event.
